NewImageOur sister site TouchArcade got an early peek at Bad Piggies, the contraption-focused addition to the Angry Birds-universe. The game has the Pigs building grand contraptions to steal eggs away from the birds.

The game will arrive sometime tomorrow for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Historically, Rovio has released games at midnight Pacific time.

We start things out with the first level, which shows the very basic gist of the game then immediately jump in to some more challenging levels later in the game before utterly failing at the star-gathering sandbox mode. So far, I like it a lot. It takes the Angry Birds franchise in a direction I'm not sure anyone was expecting with a really clever spin on the "contraption building" genre.

Honestly I hate Angry Birds, I've tried playing it many times, just couldn't get into it.. This looks like it might be better..

Thanks macrumors for advertising another subpar app on the FRONT PAGE. How much did they pay you? It's not even an iPhone exclusive game.

...pretty sure this was posted in the iOS blog and not the front page.

With as big as a hit the other titles from Rovio were I think it's safe to assume that a good amount of people would be interested in this story.

They should have called it Angry Pigs

No, they shouldn't have.

This is a fun game, but I can't believe they pushed it through without support for the iPhone 5 screen. Hopefully there will be an update soon.

These physics-inspired games...

It's getting old.

Actually, has been dated for some years already.

Nope. How can real life become outdated? Every game is working on being more realistic, and while these games aren't aiming for realistic graphics, the realistic movement (physics-based) is the direction that all gaming is moving.

How does Rovio get to know and/or dictate when their apps will be released?
You submit the App to the App Store, long before you want to release it. It gets approved...you turn it on when you want to.
